Re: Tumbling Gemstones

Barbara; I do a lot of finishing of silver with steel shot. Use it with Rio Grande sunsheen burnishing compound available from Rio Grande 800-545-6566. One question, are your sculptures easily bendable? If the are the steel shot will most likely deform them. If they are fairly substantial than yes you should be able to use this method and you have the added bonus of having your pieces work hardened as they tumble. When using steel shot it only necessary to go for an hour or two. Dave
